Noon Meeting News – February 21, 2017 – Dan Beck – Will Cale Scholarship

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, I think most everyone has seen ads on TV on insurance where they say ,”we will forgive your first accident” Knowing some of the drivers here that is a very compelling choice. Their promises pale by comparison to Yours Lord. For there are times when we are willing residents of the enemy camp. It’s then that we realize, how fortunate we are to have a God who loves us no matter what. A God that forgives us and all we have to do is ask. Help us to continue to prove we are good people
by our love and devotion to You and the Optimist kids. Amen!
